Art School: Summer Youth Camps and Classes

Fill your summer with creativity, learning and fun smiley! Don't miss EAC's Summer Camps.

At EAC we value creative exploration and cultivation because there are no "right" answers in art! Just different ways to approach and solve problems, think critically, and achieve goals. We focus on sharing new techniques and skills that enhance exisiting interests, and allow for multiple persitives and interpretations.  

Learn how to think through and with new materials and technologies at EAC this summer. Let's get creating!

"It was a wonderful experience! Engaging projects, great teachers and TA's, and a great environment. My daughter wants to return again next summer!"

"My son was a reluctant camper, and really enjoyed the week of camp he did at the EAC. Thank you so very much for great instruction and programming!"

Lunch

For all-day camps, students bring their own nut-free lunch. If you’d like to register your child for a morning and an afternoon session, a 30-minute supervised lunch break is included at no extra charge.

Late Pick-Up Arrangements

If you cannot pick up your child until 4:30 p.m., they can stay with a Teaching Assistant and continue to work on their projects started earlier in the day. $15 per day. Register for Late Pick-Up for Full Week of Camp. Register for Late Pick-Up for Shortened Week of Camp (Week 5).

For questions, check in with the Director of Education.

Outdoor Breaks Planned

Campers visit nearby McCulloch Park for a break during the day, weather permitting. We suggest you pack sunscreen and any sun protection your child may need. Students are typically given an option of continuing to work or going outside – both options include supervision by our great camp team members!
